Gallium3D Driver Comes For Intel Sandy/Ivy Bridge
Phoronix: Gallium3D Driver Comes For Intel Sandy/Ivy Bridge
In prior years there was the i965g driver that was developed independent of Intel and was targeting an open-source Gallium3D driver for Intel's newer chipsets. But unlike the i915g that was developed similar in nature, the i965g driver really never reached a working state and was ultimately removed. There is now a brand new "i965g" Gallium3D driver that is targeting support for Intel Sandy Bridge "Gen6" graphics and newer...
Attractive things might happen in the future
1. GLSL->LLVM IR directly
2. OpenCL support in ivbg

I love Gallium3D. 'oh hey, i started a new driver the other week. It's still new, but you know, Nexuiz works.' Awesome. just awesome. Very much looking forward to those benchmarks :-)
